Blush by ProjectVirtue Blush by ProjectVirtue
Merry Early Christmas everybody!
This is a piece I did for the holiday fanart contest over at AF. But it also serves as the official December Christmas piece too I guess. All you anime fanatics, check out [link], it’s great, especially when you find yourself in an anime drought, which happens unfortunately.
I pretty pleased overall with the product here. The costume really is what I like the most about it. You’ll see here a new type of eyes being used. I had a lot of tony taka influence during the summer and it kind of rubbed off on me. Those of you who notice the lack of the sclera, I kind of ended up deciding not to add sclera anymore just because I forgot so many times before some consider my style whereas others go crazy over it. I suppose it’ll stay this way though for better or for worse.
This one only took about 8 hours because it was a relatively simple coloring job. I was hoping my ideas with the flowers would turn out a bit better but I couldn’t grasp the concept.
Anyways, enjoy =]

I really really like the flower details you have in her hair and the background. It blends in so naturally *_* Wow I'm jealous, your style and technique are improving so quickly! You'll have to show me how you colour sometime

Pretty good. my average is a record high...though i shouldn't be proud of that cause its only an 84 or somewhere like that. My bio is only 86 and my friends like "YOU"RE NOT GETTING 90 ?! AT CHURCHILL ?! IN ENGLISH ?! IN NON IB?!" so feel oh so stupider now ~_~

Beautiful, I love this picture so much. I really love most of the outfit, but the top, seems like it could've use another touch or two. The hair and the background are absolutely gorgeous. The hair has a soft look to it and the background is fitting and pretty. The detail in the ornament is wonderful. Keep up the wonderful work.

I love your colouring, it's so smooth and shiny but not overly done. It's really...refined. Or something.

I love her hair! And that is really quite the outfit!
